EA Apologizes For “Unacceptable” Nintendo Joke

EA has officially apologized for what it deems to be a couple of harsh, and mean-spirited April Fool’s jokes aimed at Nintendo and its Wii U console, tweed out by its proprietary video game engine Frostbite.

The tweets have since been deleted, and came from Frostbite’s official account. All of the jokes specifically made fun of the Wii U’s hardware power, and sarcastically stating it as the most powerful console currently available.

“Good news, we have finally fixed and optimized our ‘netcode’. Uses quantum entanglement for Zero Latency connections. Exclusively on #WiiU.”

“Frostbite will power #HalfLife 3, coming out summer 2014! #WiiU exclusive.”

“Frostbite now runs on the #WiiU since it is the most powerful Gen4 platform, our renderer is now optomized for Mario and Zelda.”

EA’s Chief Operating Officer Peter Moore did not find the jokes one bit funny, and apologized from his personal Twitter account, calling them “unacceptable” and “stupid.”

“Our apologies to our partners @NintendoAmerica and fan @Frostbite Engine’s poor attempt at April Fools not condoned by EA: unacceptable/stupid,” Moore wrote.

Currently, there are no planned EA games in development for Wii U.
